SkyCity Entertainment says the fire at the International Convention Centre in Auckland is now under control and it will reopen some of its businesses.

The casino operator said some parts of the SkyCity precinct will open later today, but it's taking a phased-in approach to resuming normal business operations.

The fire at the centre across from SkyCity precinct in Auckland has been burning since about 1pm on Tuesday and firefighters are using drones to find hotspots.
